Any thoughts on mutual credit

Hi, So I know I am comparing apples and oranges with these two. But I recently have been reading alternative money theory and found mutual credit, it is a very old concept and arguably predates barter.

I have no insight how this could be useful for SourceCred, but I found it to a be a powerful concept that others might dig into and find a good use case.

The Wikipedia page for mutual credit is a good first introduction. And then the closest thing we have in terms of applied cryptography is the trustlines project

Again, given that open source is hard to fund, it is possible we might find a work around it if we dig into obscure alternative monetary theories.
